Our country's flag! 

To thee are pledged. 
Our lives, our honor, all! 

Our faith, our hopes. 
Shall ne'er deny 

The magic of thy call. 

Our fathers' God, to Thee we turn 

While we their pledge renew; 
Grant us stout hearts 

In perils small or great, 
That, following them 

Through trial, pain, or death, 
We ever place our trust in Thee 

To guard our country's fate. 

Composed for the Society by His Excellency, the Governor, 
Professor William Libbey, and formally adopted as the official 
pledge by the Council on May 8th, 19 14.

TO the activity and patriotism of the late Wilbur Fisk 
Sadler, Junior, Adjutant General of the State of New 
Jersey and a member of the Society of Colonial Wars 
in the State of New Jersey, is, in large measure, due the recla- 
mation and restoration of the old Barracks. To the people of 
New Jersey and the patriotic societies of that State this monu- 
ment of Colonial days has value immeasurable. To us, his 
associates in the Society, the Barracks will be a lasting reminder 
of a man whose like is seldom met. It is in this building that 
the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New Jersey has 
its headquarters. 

The following sketch of the old Barracks was written by 
General Sadler a few years before his death : 

During the latter part of 1753, France and England, taking 
advantage of the undetermined condition of their territorial 
limits in America, began to adopt active and systematic meas- 
ures for increasing their possessions as much as possible. To 
uphold their claims to the country on the Ohio, the French 
erected forts on French Creek and the main stream of the 
Alleghany. Great Britain also claimed this territory, and 
authorized Dunwoodie to repel French aggression and build a 
fort at the confluence of the Alleghany and Monongahela Riv- 
ers. In April, 1754, this party was driven away by the French, 
who took possession of the unfinished works, completed them 
and named the fortification "Duquesne." This and several 
other occurrences gave the signal for hostilities, although the 
war, which lasted until 1763, was not formally proclaimed until 

From the commencement of hostilities in 1754, the Prov- 
ince of New Jersey was in a constant state of apprehension of 
an attack by hostile Indians, and many accounts of their scalp- 
ing and murdering within its borders were reported to the 


During 1755, numerous petitions were filed by the in- 
habitants, asking that barracks be erected for the purpose of 
housing the troops that had been sent to the Province by the 
EngHsh. These troops were quartered with various residents 
of the State at two shillings and five pence per week for each 
soldier, and the mode of lodging had become most annoying to 
the people because the habits and morals of the soldiers were 
not of the best. 

The near approach at times of the stealthy foe, the letters 
received in Trenton giving notice of the murder of men in 
Sussex County by the savages, made the demand more insistent 
that arrangements should be made for future protection. In 
the winter of 1755, a petition was filed with the General As- 
sembly, signed by residents of various sections that felt the 
need of protection, and in quick order followed thirty-eight 
additional petitions. 

In February, 1756, Governor Belcher was petitioned by the 
most prominent men of the State, but it was not until the 15th 
of April, 1758, that a law was passed by the Council and Gen- 
eral Assembly to provide for the erection of five barracks 
within the State, to be located at Perth Amboy, Elizabethtown, 
New Brunswick, Trenton, and Burlington. These buildings 
were shortly erected by the Colonists, and it was planned that 
each should house between 300 and 5cmd troops. 

Trenton, being the most centrally located town of the State, 
and one of the most important posts, had an officers' quarters 
added to its Barracks during 1759. Much to the regret of all 
patriotic citizens, all of these buildings have been demolished 
except at Trenton, where the Barracks is being restored to its 
original condition by the State of New Jersey. 

The building is of stone, two stories in height, with base- 
ment, located at the corner of South Willow and Front Streets 
and within 300 feet of the Capitol Building. The site was well 
chosen near the banks of the Delaware and was within 100 feet 
of Petty's Run, which was filled with pure, sparkling water. 
The main building is 180 feet in length and i8>^ feet in width, 


with two wings, each 56 feet in length, at either end thereof 
and projecting at right angles from the front of the Barracks. 
The officers' quarters were built at the end of the northeasterly 

The first authentic record of the occupation of the Barracks 
shows that a regiment of Highlanders, on the second of Octo- 
ber, 1759, were quartered there, and their peculiar dress created 
much interest among the people of the town. It was occupied 
almost continually by troops until 1765, at which time the atten- 
tion of the General Assembly was called to the fact that the 
perishable articles therein should be sold and the building kept 
in repair and rented. Within a year after the Assembly took 
action, it was necessary to refit the building again and furnish 
it with bedding, blankets, and other necessaries. 

During the Revolutionary War the Barracks was occupied at 
various times by companies of British and Hessian troops and 
recruits for the American army. For two weeks prior to the 
battle of Trenton it was occupied by English Dragoons and 
German Yeagers, together with a number of Tory refugees 
from Monmouth and Burlington Counties. It continued until 
the end of the war as a place for quartering the soldiers of 
either army who happened to be in possession of the sur- 
rounding territory. 

In 1787 the building was sold and divided into apartments, 
and in 1793, Front Street, to a width of 35 feet, was extended 
from Willow Street to the State Capitol, passing directly 
through the Barracks, a portion of which was razed for its 
accommodation, parallel and quite close to the north wing. 





THE purposes for which the Society of Colonial Wars in 
the State of New Jersey exists are stated in the Pre- 
amble of its Constitution. As one means of perpetuating 
the memory of important persons and events of Colonial 
history, the Society has adopted the plan of erecting tablets 
commemorative of persons, sites, and events. 

Between the years 1910 and 1916 four tablets were erected 
by the Society : those marking the site of the first court house 
of Somerset County, at Six Mile Run, and the site of the 
second court house of Somerset County, at Hillsborough ; that 
commemorative of the settlement of Elizabeth Towne ; and that 
in memory of Hendrick Fisher, President of the first Board of 
Trustees of Queen's College, now Rutgers College. The two 
Somerset County tablets and the Hendrick Fisher tablet are 
the work of Albert Weinert; the Elizabeth Towne tablet is the 
work of John Williams, Inc. Photographs of these tablets and 
some account of the objects, events, and persons they com- 
memorate were included in the 191 7 Book of the Society. 
Plans for further work of this nature are in process of

of the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New Jersey.

Society of Colonial Wars 


State of New Jersey. 


WHEREAS, It is eminently proper that the prominent 
events of our Colonial history from the settlement of 
Jamestown, Va., May 13, 1607, to the battle of Lexing- 
ton, April 19, 1775, should be duly commemorated, and, 

Whereas, Our forefathers, following the dictates of their 
consciences, and in order to secure civil and religious liberty, 
imperiled their lives in the founding and maintenance of the 
Colonies of America, and, 

Whereas, The embodiment of their fundamental ideas is our 
Declaration of Independence, and the final result of their labors 
is the United States of America, 

Now, therefore, we, their descendants, in order to perpetu- 
ate the memory of our ancestors, and to preserve for all times 
the names and deeds of those who, by their acts and counsel, 
assisted in the establishment and maintenance of the American 
Colonies, do hereby constitute ourselves the Society of Colonial 
Wars in the State of New Jersey, to the end that it may collect 
and preserve the manuscripts, records, and other documents 
relating to that period, that it may erect memorials commem- 
orating persons and events of the Colonial Period, and may 
advance the study of Colonial History through publication of 
original documents of importance and historical works of merit, 
that it may inspire in these ways its members and their de- 
scendants with the fraternal and patriotic spirit of their fore- 
fathers, and that it may perpetuate those national characteristics 
by which alone the unity and liberty of our country have been 
secured, and by which alone they can be maintained and 
preserved. m m ^^

The Treasurer shall collect and keep the funds and securities 
of the Society and shall deposit them in a bank designated by 
the Council, to the credit of the Society of Colonial Wars in the

Members shall be elected by the Council, and the procedure

A candidate shall be proposed to the Council by one member 
of the Society and seconded by another, to both of whom he 
shall be personally known. Such proposal shall be in writing 
and signed by the proposer and seconder, and accompanied by 
their personal letters of information and recommendation. The 
proposal shall be endorsed on, or embodied in, formal applica- 
tion papers to be executed in duplicate on blanks to be fur- 
nished by the Secretary, showing in detail the services of the 
ancestor upon whom the candidate bases his claim for admis- 
sion to the Society, the line of descent from the ancestor, and 
the personal history of the candidate. These papers when 
properly filled out and sworn to by the applicant or by a proper 
person in his behalf, shall be sent with such proof of qualifica- 
tion as the case may require to the Secretary. The Secretary 
shall thereupon notify each member of the Council of the name 
and address of the applicant and the names of his proposer and 
seconder, and shall transmit the application papers to the 
Registrar for examination and report as to the applicant's 
ancestral qualifications ; if such report be adverse the applicant 
shall be notified, and the application shall be considered as 
rejected unless the Council shall determine to make further 
investigation of the claim, on which its decision shall be final. 
In case of doubt as to the applicant's ancestral qualifications, 
the case may be referred by the Council to the Registrar Gen- 
eral of the General Society for advice. 

The Council shall investigate the personal qualifications of 
the candidate. Any member of the Council having objection 
to his election or to immediate action on his name shall notify 
the Secretary in writing or orally of such objection, in which 
case no further proceedings shall be taken on the application 
until so directed by the Council at a meeting. If no objection 
shall have been received by the Secretary from any member 
of the Council at least two weeks before the Council meeting 
at which the application would be considered in the absence of 
objection, and if the report of the Registrar on the ancestral 
qualification be favorable, then at least ten days before such 


Council meeting the Secretary shall mail to every other mem- 
ber of the Society a notice of the candidacy of such applicant. 
Any member having objection to the election of such proposed 
member may submit his objection in writing to the Secretary, 
who shall present the same with the application for the consid- 
eration and information of the Council at their first meeting 
after the receipt of such information. All such communica- 
tions and any and all matters pertaining thereto, shall be treated 
as confidential. No applicant shall be voted on who is not per- 
sonally known to at least two members of the Council. An 
applicant receiving two negative votes when his application is 
voted on, shall fail of election. Upon the election of a member 
his application papers shall be transmitted to and one of the 
said papers preserved by the Registrar, the other being for- 
warded to the Registrar General. If the applicant be a resident 
within the jurisdiction of another State Society, his application 
for membership in this Society shall not be considered without 
a waiver of jurisdiction in writing from the Council of the 
State Society within whose jurisdiction he resides. Payment 
of the initiation fees and dues, and subscription to the Consti- 
tution of the General Society of Colonial Wars and to the 
Constitution and By-laws of this Society, shall be a pre- 
requisite to membership. 

Supplemental applications shall not be considered until the 
applicant has become a member of the Society, when supple- 
mental lines of descent will be acted upon, subject to the above 
requirements as to eligibility. 



Every member shall declare upon honor that he will use 
his best efforts to promote the purposes of the Society of 
Colonial Wars, and will observe the "Constitution and by-laws" 
of the same, and of the General Society; and that he will 
support the Constitution of the United States of America, and 


of the State of New Jersey. Such declaration shall be in 
writing and subscribed by the member making it. 



At every General Court or meeting of the Council the pur- 
poses of the Society shall be considered, and the best measures 
to promote them adopted. No party political question of the 
day, or existing controversial religious subject, shall be dis- 
cussed or considered at any Court of the Society or meeting 
of the Council. 



The Society shall from time to time hold celebrations com- 
memorative of events of Colonial history. A dinner shall be 
held in connection with the Annual Court. 



The seal of the Society shall be the Arms of the Province, 
surmounted by a crown, and described as follows : 

Within a beaded annulet a title scroll 1607 — Society of 
Colonial Wars in the State of New Jersey — 1775, and in base 
the motto "Fortiter Pro Patria." Over all a shield bearing the

ciety shall be worn as a decoration only, and in the manner 
prescribed by the General Society, and only on occasions of 
dress and ceremony, and never as an ornament or article of 
jewelry; any member offending against the provisions of 
this article shall be liable to expulsion by the Council, in which 
case his insignia shall be forfeited, and must be returned to 
the Treasurer, who is authorized to pay such expelled member 
the cost of same. 

Sec. 2. Applications for insignia shall be made through the 
Treasurer of this Society, who shall keep a record of all 
insignia issued through him. 

Sec. 3. The insignia of any member who may resign or 
be expelled shall be returned to the Treasurer, except in the 
case where a member in good standing in this Society resigns 
therefrom but retains his membership in any one of the other 
State Societies in good standing with the General Society. No 
member shall receive more than one insignia, except to replace 
one lost, proof of which must be satisfactorily established, and 
the new one paid for. 



The flag of the Society shall consist of the red cross of 
St. George on a white field, bearing in the centre the escutcheon 
or seal of the Society. 



The Annual Court of the Society shall be held in the month 
of May in each year at such time and place as the Council shall 



decide. Twelve members of the Society shall be a quorum for 
the transaction of business, and the proceedings shall be in 
accordance with parliamentary law. 

Special Courts may be called by the Governor at such time, 
and at such place, as in his opinion the interest of the Society 
may demand, or as provided for under Article VII.

At the General Court held in the years preceding the stated 
meetings of the General Assembly of the General Society, this 
Society shall elect from its members five delegates and five 
alternates, or provide for their selection in some other manner, 
to serve three years, and until their successors are elected and 
qualify, to represent this Society at all Meetings of the Gen- 
eral Assembly held during their term of office. Any vacancy 
in the number of delegates by reason of death, resignation, or 
otherwise shall be filled by the alternates in the order in which 
their names appeared in the ballot at their election, as tran- 
scribed in the minutes. The Council shall have power to fill 
any vacancy in the number of alternates, to serve until the next 


Court at which delegates and alternates are elected according to 
the provisions of this Article. 



The Council shall meet in January, April, June, and October, 
at such time and place as they may appoint, either within or 
without the State of New Jersey. Five members shall con- 
stitute a quorum for all business. 

The Council shall have the power to call special Courts of 
the Society and arrange for celebrations by the Society. They 
shall have control and management of the affairs and funds of 
the Society. They shall at no time be required to take any 
action or contract any debt for which they shall be liable. They 
may accept the resignation of any member of the Society. 

They may submit to the Society annually a report of their 
proceedings during the past year. The Council shall have the 
power to drop from the roll the name of any member of the 
Society who shall be at least two years in arrears, and who 
shall fail to pay the same within sixty days after notice in 
writing. On being dropped, his membership shall cease; but 
he may be restored to membership at any time by the Council 
upon his written application and the payment of all arrears to 
the date of his restoration. The Council may suspend any 
officer for cause, which must be reported to the Society, and 
action taken on the same within thirty days by the Society. 



The resignation of a member shall not become effective 
unless accepted by the Council. The Council may restore to 
membership, upon his written application, any person whose 
resignation has been accepted. 




No person enrolled as a member of this Society shall be 
permitted to continue in membership if proof of descent or 
of the service of his ancestor be found defective. The Council 
after thirty days' notice to such person to substantiate his 
claim, upon his failure satisfactorily so to do, may require the 
Secretary to erase his name from the membership list. 

The said person shall have a right to appeal to the Society 
at its next Court. If the appeal be sustained by a two-thirds 
vote of the members present at the Court, the person's name 
shall be restored to the membership list. 



Any member for conduct detrimental or antagonistic to the 
interest or purposes of the Society, or for other just cause, 
may be suspended or expelled from the Society. But no mem- 
ber shall be expelled or suspended unless written charges be 
preferred against such member to or by direction of the 

The Council shall give thirty days' notice in writing of such 
charges, and afford such member reasonable opportunity to 
appear with counsel and be heard and refute the same. The 
Council, after hearing such charges and refutation, may, by a 
two-thirds vote, recommend to the Society the suspension or 
expulsion of such member, and if the recommendation of the 
Council be adopted by a two-thirds vote of the members of 
the Society present at such Court, he shall be so suspended or 
expelled. If expelled, the insignia of said member shall there- 
upon be returned to the Treasurer of the Society, and his rights 
therein shall be extinguished or suspended. In case of expul- 
sion, the Treasurer shall refund to the said member the amount 
paid for the said insignia. 

Whenever, for any reason satisfactory to the Society-at- 
large, the resignation of any member shall be requested by 
resolution adopted by unanimous vote of all other members 


present at a meeting of the Society held upon notice specifying 
that such resolution will be offered, and such member shall fail 
or refuse to resign within thirty days after notice of the pas- 
sage of such resolution, the name of such member shall be 
dropped from the roll of the Society without the presentation 
of charges. In such case the insignia shall be returned and paid 
for as in case of expulsion. 



It shall be the duty of every member to inform the Secretary 
by written communication of his place of residence and of any 
change thereof, and of his post-office address. Service of any 
notice under the Constitution or By-laws, on any member, may 
be made by depositing the same in the mail, postage prepaid, 
addressed to such member. 



No alterations of, or amendment to, this Constitution shall 
be made unless notice specifying the proposed alteration or 
amendment shall have been given in writing, signed by the 
member proposing the same, at a Court of the Society. 

The Secretary shall send a copy of the proposed alteration 
or amendment to each member of the Society, and state the 
Court at which the same will be voted upon. No amendment 
or alteration of the said amendment shall be made unless 
adopted by a two-thirds vote of the members present at the 
Court voting upon the same. 



The insignia of the Society shall consist of a badge, pendant 
by a gold crown and ring from a watered silk ribbon one inch 
and a half wide, of red, bordered with white and edged with 


red. The badge shall be surrounded by a laurel wreath in gold 
and shall consist of : 

Obverse: A white enameled star of nine points bordered with 
red enamel, having between the points nine shields, each dis- 
playing an emblem of one of the nine original colonies; and, 
within a blue enameled garter bearing the motto : "Fortiter Pro 
Patria," an Indian's head in gold relievo. 

Reverse: The star above described, but with gold edge, each 
shield between the points displaying a mullet, and in the center, 
within an annulet of blue, bearing the title "Society of Colonial 
Wars, 1607- 1775," the figure of a colonial soldier in gold 
relievo. The reverse of the crown of each badge shall bear an 
engraved number, corresponding to that of the registered num- 
ber of the member to whom such insignia have been issued. 

The insignia shall be worn by the members on any occasion 
when they assemble for a stated purpose or celebration, and 
may be worn on any occasion of ceremony. It shall be worn 
conspicuously on the left breast. Members who are or have 
been officers of a State Society, including Gentlemen of the 
Council, may wear the badge with three jewels in the crown 
suspended from a regulation ribbon around the neck. Mem- 
bers who are or have been officers of the General Society may 
wear a sash (ribbon) of the Society's colors, three and one- 
half inches in width, extending from the right shoulder to the 
left hip, with the badge pendant at the intersection of its ends 
over the hip. The insignia shall be worn only as prescribed in 
this Article, and in accordance with regulations adopted from 
time to time by the General Council. 

A rosette or button of the size now in use, or of a miniature 
size, of red watered silk with white thread edging may be 
worn on occasions other than formal in the upper buttonhole 
of the left lapel of the coat, provided it be not worn with other 
insignia of the Society. 

The Regulations of the General Society of Colonial Wars

*The General Council respectfully points out that the pres- 
tige and influence of the Society much depends upon the en- 
thusiastic loyalty of the members everywhere to those great 
principles which look for origin to American Colonial history. 
In the multiplication of patriotic societies, representing other 
periods and having different aims from those for which we 
stand, it is deemed peculiarly important that every member 
should possess and should use on all suitable occasions the 
emblems and insignia of this Society. It is hoped that mem- 
bers who may not have procured insignia already will do so. 
It is desirable that care be exercised and effort made by all 
members to see to it, that in whatever makes for public recog- 
nition this Society shall stand second to none."

by the late Edward Shippen, Treasurer General 1895- 1904.

Par. 3. The Army Air Service Commander, First Army, cites 
the following officer for exceptional devotion to duty: 


Captain W. G. Schauffler, Jr., A. S., U. S. A., Headquarters, 
Air Service, First Army, Assistant Chief of Staff and Operations 
Officer, served with the greatest degree of efficiency. Prior to 
the cessation of hostilities, this officer was in command of the 
Observation Group, Third Army Corps, and through his un- 
tiring efforts, skill, and bravery attained for his Group the 
highest state of morale and efficiency, which placed it among 
the foremost of any of the First Army. 

Captain Schauffler was one of the first American officers to 
fly over the lines, and through his excellent work in the Spring 
of 19 1 8, he was afterwards given command of the 90th Aero 

In the summer months of 19 18, he was admitted to the hos- 
pital, but when news of the proposed American offensive at St. 
Mihiel reached him, he left the hospital, although still in an 
unfit physical condition and joined his squadron in time to par- 
ticipate in that offensive. 

This officer through his own personal bravery, flying continu- 
ously over the lines while acting as Squadron Commander, was 
awarded the French Croix de Guerre and was recommended 
for the American Distinguished Service Cross. 

The Army Air Service Commander takes great pleasure in 
thanking this officer for the great help and assistance he con- 
tributed to the success of the Air Service, not only as a Squad- 
ron Commander, and Group Commander, but also as a Staff 
Officer at these headquarters. 

By order of Colonel Milling, 

R. L. Walsh, 
Major, A. S., U. S. A. 

Chief of Staff." 

Commended by same in orders October 23, 191 8, as follows:

1. Desire to invite attention to the services of Captain Wil- 
liam G. Schauffler, Jr., Air Service, who, while commanding the 
90th Aero Squadron under my orders, signally distinguished 
himself by extraordinary heroism and consistent bravery and 
devotion to duty in connection with military operations against 
an armed enemy of the United States. 

2. On October ist, 191 8, while carrying out an important 
reconnaissance mission over enemy territory in the region of 
Dannevoux, north of Verdun, Captain SchaufHer's plane was 
attacked by a formation of eight hostile pursuit planes. 
Captain Schauffler unhesitatingly accepted combat and by an 
admirable display of skill and coolness not only succeeded in 
beating ofif his assailants but destroyed one of them. In the 
course of the combat this officer's plane was riddled with bullets 
and partially disabled. Notwithstanding the disabled condition 
of his plane, which rendered further flight extremely hazardous, 
Captain Schauflier resumed his mission which he successfully ac- 
complished, returning to the airdrome with information of great 
tactical value. In the performance of his duties as Command- 
ing Officer of the 90th Aero Squadron, Air Service of the Third 
Corps, First Army, this officer at all times distinguished himself 
by his qualities as a leader and an executive. The example he 
set in volunteering for and accomplishing at frequent intervals 
airplane missions of the most hazardous and difficult nature held 
the morale of the pilots and observers under his command con- 
stantly at a high level. In untiring energy, military zeal, and 
most complete devotion to duty Captain Schauffler set the pace 
and marked the standard of efficiency, completely dominating, 
and winning the respect and admiration of all whom he com-

The first of the three records is the Minutes of the session 
of the Assembly of West New Jersey for May, 1686. Through 
some accident doubtless, these were omitted from Leaming 
and Spicer's ''Grants and Concessions." A transcript of the 
record was very kindly supplied for our publication by the 
Director of the Public Record Office of the State of New 
Jersey, Dr. Carlos E. Godfrey. Though the Minutes contain 
the record of no great transactions, they are of no small in- 
terest, and the fact that they have not heretofore been pub- 
lished amply justifies their inclusion here. 

The second and third documents we owe to the Courtesy of 
the Connecticut State Library and its accomplished Librarian, 
George S. Godard, Esquire. 

The first is a petition signed by upward of two hundred and 
seventy-five inhabitants of Hunterdon county and presented 
to the Connecticut General Court in May, 1755, praying to be 
erected into a County of Connecticut because of their alleged 
belief that their property was included within the bounds of 
the Colony of Connecticut as they were set forth in the Royal 
Charter granted to that Colony by Charles in 1662. The peti- 
tion is of interest because of the light it throws on the feeling 
of uncertainty in regard to the security of tenures of land as 
well as because of the large number of names of inhabitants 
of Hunterdon County in 1755. One suspects it is almost a roll 
of the male inhabitants of full age. 

The third document — really there are two documents — is a 
petition for a lottery in Connecticut for the benefit of the 
infant College of New Jersey, now Princeton University, to- 
gether with the letter of thanks from the Trustees of Princeton 
for the granting of the favor. The document is of interest 
because of its importance for the history of our great Uni- 
versity; as an illustration of the methods of those days for 


raising funds for educational and religious purposes; and 
because of the evidence it offers of the cordial relations existing 
then as now between the two great educational institutions of 
New Jersey and Connecticut.

The Petition of the Trustees of the College of New- Jersey 
humbly sheweth. 

That your Petitioners being incorporated by a Royal Charter, 
through Favour of his Excellency Governor Belcher, have 
endeavoured to establish a College in the Province of New- 
Jersey for the Advancement of Religion & Learning. 

That the Want of some publick Method of Education for 
Youth in these parts has long been lamented by all that wish 
well to the best Interests of Mankind on many Accounts, espe- 
cially on Account of repeated importunate Calls of vacant 
Congregations in this & the Southern Provinces for Gospel 
Ministers, which long Experience has convinced us, the Col- 
leges of New-England, by Reason of their great Distance and 
Vacancies among themselves, can never answer. 

That tho' divine Providence has smiled on our attempts even 
beyond our Expectation, and by the small Stock raised through 
the Generosity of our Benefactors, and other Ways, we are 
able to carry on the Instruction of Youth, we hope to some 
valuable purposes. Yet 'tis by no means sufficient to defray 
the Charge of such a publick Building as the growing Number 
of Students and the better carrying on of our Design seems 
loudly to call for. 

That notwithstanding we are favoured with one of the best 


of Governors, who has done every Thing in his Power to 
promote this useful Design. Yet after repeated AppHcations 
having been made by your Petitioners to the General Assembly 
of the Province of New- Jersey, for the Liberty of setting for- 
ward a Lottery in the said Province, Your Petitioners have 
not been successful in obtaining an Act for that purpose. 

That Your Petitioners cant think of any Method to procure 
a sufficient Sum to defray the Charge of such a costly Under- 
taking, unless this Hon.^^^ Assembly will be so good as to grant 
us the Liberty of drawing a publick Lottery in one of their 
western Towns, Fairfield, Stamford, or any other that shall be 
thought more proper. 

That the laudable Zeal, the general Court of this Colony has 
ever shown for the Advancement of Religions & Learning, has 
greatly encouraged Your Petitioners to make this Request. 

That the drawing a Lottery in the Colony, Your Petitioners 
humbly conceive cannot be thought a Burthen or Grievance by 
the Constituents of this Assembly; since 'tis not at the Charge 
or Risque of the Government, and 'tis expected by far the 
greatest part of the Tickets will be sold in other Governments, 
and few if any more in the Colony, than if it was made in any 
other Province. 

That none, we imagine, can construe it a countenancing 
another College to the Disadvantage of your own, not only as 
they are both set up with the same laudable Design; but also 
whenever we are enabled to build, we shall remove at near 
fifty Miles farther distant from Yale College; not to mention 
that it would be an happy Means of establishing & perpetuating 
a desirable Harmony and good agreement between the two 
Seats of Learning, which will be the Care of Your Petitioners 
to promote and preserve. 

That should this Honourable Assembly extend their gen- 
erous Design of doing good to a distant Province, and give 
Countenance to our important & useful Undertaking by grant- 
ing our Petition. It would meet with the most grateful 


Acknowledgment from many, as well as from your humble 
Petitioners, who as in Duty bound shall ever pray &c ; 
Sign'd per Order of the Trustees 

by Caleb Smith The Corp. 

General Assembly Oct. 1753 

In the Upper House 
The foregoing Petition, for the Liberty of drawing a public 
Lottery for the Purposes, therein mentioned, is granted. (The 
said Lottery to be drawn in the Town of Stamford) and that 
the Bill in form may be brott in accordingly 

Teste George Wyllys, Secret'y 

In the Lower house 

The Question was put whether they would Concurr with ye 
Vote of ye Hon.^^® upper house in Granting ye foregoing Peti- 
tion for ye purposes therein mentioned & Resolved in ye 

Teste John Fowler, Clerk 

MAY loTH, 1754. 

Whereas the general Assembly of this Colony was pleased in 
their last Session at New Haven to grant the Petition of the 
Trustees of the College of New Jersey requesting Liberty of 
drawing a Lottery in their Colony for the Benefit of said 
College; The Trustees do take this first Opportunity of pay- 
ing their most grateful Acknowledgments for that generous 

As this Liberty allowed to promote the Design of founding 
a College in another Province discovers a disinterested Regard 
to the general Interest of Religion and Learning and shows 
that the Legislature of Connecticut are inspired with a noble 
greatness of Spirit, which looks down with Disdain upon those 


petty Jealousies which are too apt to actuate publick Bodies; 
We trust it will be long remembered to their Honour by all 
the sincere Welwishers to the Cause of Religion and the 
Common- Wealth of Letters ; And while the College of New 
Jersey shall have a Being or continue to diffuse its benign 
Influences throughout the southern Provinces of North America 
it will not be forgot that this honourable Court encouraged it in 
its Infancy, and helped to give it a lasting Establishment. 

The Trustees of the College in an especial Manner entertain 
Sentiments of the highest Gratitude for the Generosity of this 
honourable Assembly, and shall ever wish the Peace and Pros- 
perity of the Government of which they are the Head. 

That the Colony of Connecticut may long flourish in 
a [11] useful Arts, and have their civil religious Liberties con- 
tinued to them — to the latest Generations, and that Heaven 
may crown it's Inhabi[tants] with the best Blessings both 
temporal and Spiritual is and shall be the prayer of 


Much Obliged 

and most humble Serv.*^

A List 


Civil Officers in New Jersey 


April 19, 1775. 

APRIL 19, 1775. 

AT the request of the Council of the Society of Colonial 
Wars in the State of New Jersey, the Rev. Professor 
Charles W. Shields, D.D., LL.D., Chaplain of the 
Society, assisted by Mr. V. L. Collins, Assistant Librarian of 
Princeton University, prepared a list of the Civil Officers in 
New Jersey descent from whom is a qualification for member- 
ship in the Society. A like list, with references to the authori- 
ties, was prepared by Emory McClintock, LL.D., Governor 
of the Society. Comparison has resulted in the correction of 
errors and omissions. Many names are now irrecoverable, as 
the legislative minutes prior to 1703 (for the Council of East 
New Jersey prior to 1682) have not been preserved. 

Officers who are not known to have resided even temporarily 
in New Jersey are omitted, as not having held office "in" the 
Colony. As the Constitution of the Society mentions the office 
of "Lord Proprietor,'' those proprietors are omitted who were 
not of the governing body; that is, for West New Jersey, all 
except William Penn and Gawen Lawrie are omitted, and 
for East New Jersey, those only are included who joined in the 
Surrender, or who are known to have become qualified for a 
share in the government by the ownership of at least one 
ninety-sixth part of the province. 

The date given for each office is that of the first year in 
which the office appears to have been held, so far as has been 
observed from the records now extant. It is possible that in 
a few cases two persons of the same name who held the same 
office within a few years of each other may erroneously appear 
as one person in this list. Variations of speUing must be 
allowed for by the reader, and also aliases, such as Vauquellin 
and Laprairie, Dalboe and Mattson, Michielsen and Vreeland, 
Van Winkel and Jacobs. 

Further study of the subject has revealed many errors in 



the list above described and a number of omissions are prob- 
able. In the list which follows all recognized errors have been 
corrected, but further research and work upon the list are 
much to be desired.

^The names of the members of the Assembly of 1697 are known 
chiefly from the signatures to a document preserved in the Public 
Records Office in London. This document is printed in Volume II of 
the New Jersey Archives (pp. 147-148) ; reference to the original shows 
that in transcribing the signatures preparatory to printing, several pal- 
pable inaccuracies occurred, as here indicated : Daniel Wills appears as 
Daniel Mills, Henry Ballinger as Henry Callingor, Richard Darkin as 
Richard Daukin or Davkin, Hananiah Gant or Gaunt as Hananiah 
Gam, William Bates as William Pate, Archibald Mickle as Archibald 
Michell, and Freedom Lippincott as Fred: Jam. Lippincott. 

^ The name printed Peter Canson should be Peter Corson. It appears 
in Volume V of the Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society 
as Peter Causon, as indeed it was sometimes written. 

'A study of Daily's "Woodbridge" makes it evident that the name 
printed John Jerley in Volume XIII of the New Jersey Archives should 
be John Ilsley. 

* Comparison with the original Minutes shows that the name printed 
Joseph Keems should be Joseph Keen.

Henry Leber Coit. 

Henry Leber Coit was born at Peapack, New Jersey, on 
March 16, 1854, the son of Rev. John Summerfield Coit, and 
died at his home in Newark, New Jersey, in March, 191 7. He 
was descended, being the eighth in the line of descendants, 
from Ensign ComeHus Nevius, who was engaged in Queen 
Anne's war in 1689, being stationed at a fort on Staten Island. 

Dr. Coit was admitted to membership in our Society May 3, 
1907, State Number no, General Number 4108. He served 
as Surgeon of the Society from 1907-1909 and from 1911-1915. 

The Physician's first education was acquired in the Newark 
Public Schools. He afterwards attended the College of 
Pharmacy in New York City, graduating as valedictorian of 
his class in 1876, and followed the profession of chemistry for 
four years. He then entered the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons in New York City, from which Institution he was 
graduated in 1883, after which he began the practice of medi- 
cine in Newark. 

In 1876 he married Miss Emma Gwinnell, daughter of Mr. 
J. M. Gwinnell of Newark. 

The two great movements that will be identified with the 
life work of Dr. Coit are the Certified Milk Crusade, and the 
Babies' Hospital in Newark, the latter being the first Institu- 
tion of its kind in the United States. The Babies' Hospital 
was incorporated in May, 1896, and Dr. Coit's first interest 
was always in the Babies' Hospital; it was the dream of 
his life that some day enough money would be obtained to 
build a new structure which would be in keeping with the 
fact that Newark's Institution was the pioneer in this work. 

Dr. Coit was Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Relief of 
the Citizens' Health Committee of Newark, appointed by the 



Mayor to raise a fund for, and superintend the care of infantile 
paralysis victims. Although this work fell upon the Physician 
at the time when his health was none too robust, his great 
interest in children led him to enter into the duties with unusual 
fervor. He sacrificed all but three or four days of his vacation 
in order to perfect an organization to handle properly the 
children that had been stricken. Under his personal direction 
a corps of trained nurses was selected, and each day through- 
out last Winter this staff went forth to the various homes in 
Newark where lived these paralysis victims, and administered 
such treatment as was necessary to restore their limbs to 
usefulness. All details of this work were personally looked 
after by Dr. Coit. 

It has been said by an eminent Physician that Dr. Coit did 
greater service in the preventative medicine practice than Pas- 
teur or Koch, and he was as well known in Europe as in this 
country, through his work for babies and pure milk. 

He was Vice-President of the International Society of 
Goutte de Lait (Milk Dispensaries) with headquarters at 
Budapest. He was a member of the American Association of 
Medical Milk Commissions, having been its first President ; a 
Fellow of the American Club of Physicians, Inc., from which 
he received a handsome gold medal in 191 5. He was also 
a member of the American Pediatric Society, member of the 
New Jersey Pediatric Society, a member of the New Jersey 
State Medical, and Essex County Medical Societies, and of 
the Practitioners' Club of Newark. He belonged to the Essex 
Club, and to the St. John's Lodge F. & A. M. He was Con- 
sulting Physician at many Institutions, including St. Vincent's 
Foundling Asylum in Montclair, New Jersey, and the Home 
for Crippled Children in Newark. He represented the Medical 
Societies of this country at the International Congress for the 
Prevention of Infants' Diseases, held in Berlin in 191 1. He 
was also an Officer of the Halsey Street M. E. Church in 
Newark, and was active in Church and Sunday School work, 
founding several young men's clubs in former years. 


What a splendid record and what a wonderful thing it is 
for a man to have lived and died having accomplished some- 
thing that lives after him and especially in the saving of life 
and the alleviation of pain ; and what a contrast to the thou- 
sands of men who are born and live and die, and never 
accomplish anything more than an existence which is soon 
forgotten and for which the world is never any better. 

Of all the Societies to which Dr. Coit belonged, he seemed 
most devoted to the Society of the Colonial Wars ; the button 
of our Society was the only indication of membership in any 
of the many Societies to which he belonged, that he wore 
upon his breast at the time of his funeral. 

George Rowland Howe. 

George Rowland Howe was born in New York City on 
October 31, 1847, son of Dr. John and Emaline G. Howe. 
He was the grandson of Major Bezaleel Howe, Lieutenant 
First New Hampshire Line, and served in the Guard of Honor 
which shielded Washington from perils and intrigues con- 
tinually besetting him during the War for Independence. 

Mr. Howe was admitted to membership in our Society on 
October 13, 1900, State Number 64, National Number 2960, 
being the fifth descendant from Colonel Thomas Howe. He 
died at his residence in East Orange on June 9, 191 7. 

Mr. Howe was educated by a private tutor in his early years 
and then entered the New York University. Before com- 
pleting his course there, he entered actively into mercantile 
business, beginning as a traveling salesman. His natural 
ability, however, soon manifested itself and he rapidly rose in 
business and was admitted to membership in the firm of 
Carter, Hawkins, & Sloane, manufacturing jewelers, which 
afterwards became the firm of Carter, Howe, & Company, and 
at the time of his death Mr. Howe was the active member of 
this firm. 

His was one of the quiet lives that are deep and steadfast, 
and while not so prominently before the public in his patriotic 


life, he was devoted to the Societies of which he was a member 
and gladly gave of his time and talents to serve in every way 
possible. He had unusual ability in being able to see clearly 
into various plans presented for consideration, and always 
insisted in shaping the proceedings of these organizations much 
to their benefit. 

It has been said of him that he was a devoted father and 
husband, and a royal host — "His family circle was charming 
and typically American." 

He was a man of deep piety and was as devoted and earnest 
in his Church as in his patriotic duties. His religion was not 
simply a profession — he made it practical in his broad and 
generous gifts to charities and assistance to them in every way 
that he could. He did not give blindly nor thoughtlessly, but 
always intelligently and consistently. 

Mr. Howe was equally faithful in the discharge of his civic 
duties, and was noted for his faithful attendance in his visits 
to the polling places, and thought it not the least of his duties 
to acquaint himself with the men for whom he was called upon 
to vote. 

His last illness was long and trying, but the end came peace- 
, fully, and he passed into his eternal home and reward. 

m Benjamin Shepard. 

^ Benjamin Shepard was admitted to membership in the 
. Society of Colonial Wars of the State of New Jersey on 
November 21, 1902, with State No. yy and the National 
No. 3333. 

Mr. Shepard was born in Shepardville, Mass., in 1838, and 
died at his home in East Orange, N. J., on January loth, this 
year (1918). He was eighth in descent from William Brad- 
ford and from Miles Standish, and ninth in the line from John 
Alden of the Mayflower and early Massachusetts days. 

In 1855 he entered the woolen business in New York City 
as a member of the firm of H. B. Smith & Co., which later 
became Rockefeller & Shepard. During the Civil War Mr. 


Shepard served as a Captain in the 23rd Regiment of Brooklyn. 

He was an elder of the Presbyterian Church in Orange for 
many years, and compiled several hymn books. 

In addition to his membership in our Society, he was a mem- 
ber of the Society of Mayflower Descendants, the Sons of the 
American Revolution, Society of the War of 1812, and the 
Huguenot Society. 

A little less than a year ago Mr. Shepard met with us at 
the residence of Mr. Gardner, and in the absence of our Chap- 
lain read a most appropriate prayer. He appeared in excellent 
health at that time, and spoke particularly of the pleasure he 
had in working in his garden. To all who knew him he was 
the kindly and courteous gentleman, delightful in his manners, 
and his life was marked by his Christian characteristics and 
sterling integrity. 

It is with real sorrow that we announce Mr. Shepard's death 
and realize that we will never again have the pleasure of seeing 
him in our meetings. 

John H. Sprague, Esquire. 

John H. Sprague, Esquire, whose death occurred at his 
residence. Short Hills, New Jersey, on May 9, 19 18, was 
admitted to membership in the Society of Colonial Wars in 
the State of New Jersey February 6, 19 15, State Number 
164, General Society Number 5300. He was elected a member 
of the Council May 4, 19 17, to serve an unexpired term for 
2 years. 

He was fourth in descent from Knight Sprague, who was 
born in 171 1 and died in 1804, and served as Private in the 
Massachusetts Militia in the French and Indian Wars in 1759. 
Mr. Sprague was of New England parentage, but he himself 
was born in New York City in 185 1. His grandfather was 
one of the partners of Sprague, Robinson, & Company, a well- 
known and successful shipping firm. Mr. Sprague's father 
did not engage in any active business, but was a public spirited 
man, prominent in Church and Sunday School affairs, as well 




as in politics, representing the Democratic Party at several State 

He married, as his first v^ife, Miss Susie Ketcham, daughter 
of Enoch Ketcham, who was a manufacturer of stamped tin- 
ware, the business becoming finally consolidated in the Central 
Stamping Company, and Mr. Sprague was for many years an 
Officer of that Corporation. His first wife died in 1899 and 
in 1901 he married, as his second wife, Miss Annie F. Randall, 
of New York City. 

He left the Central Stamping Company after the death of 
Mr. Ketcham, and became President of the Standard Rope 
and Twine Company, and afterwards became the Treasurer 
of the D. P. Winne Company, of Worth Street, New York 
City, which position he was filling at the time of his death. 

He was President and Director of the Wheatena Company; 
he was also a member of the Union League Club and the 
Merchants Club, of the Society of Descendants of the May- 
flower, as well as of our own Society of the Colonial Wars. 

Mr. Sprague had two sons by his first wife, both of whom 
are married and living in California. Mr. Sprague in his 
religious belief was originally a Presbyterian, but in the later 
years of his life was a member of the Episcopal Church. 

It is said that he never enjoyed good health, having been 
threatened with tuberculosis several times, and he also suffered 
several attacks of pneumonia. 

Mr. Sprague because of his courteous and cordial manner was 
a most popular man. We recall his having entertained us at the 
Union League Club last January, and we can never forget his 
fcordial and delightful manner or the charming entertainment 
he gave us. 

George Els worth Koues. 

George Els worth Koues, State Number 5, General Number 
^367, was a charter member of our Society and served as Secre- 
tary of it from 1894 to 1898. Mr. Koues died at his late 
residence, 70 East 79th Street, New York, February 8, 19 19. 

163 . 

His business was that of banking. He was connected with 
the MetropoHtan Life Insurance Company and with the 
Equitable Trust Company. He was Governor of the Dudley 
Family Association. He was a Vestryman of St. John's 
Church in Elizabeth and also Trinity Church in New York 
City. He was born February 28, 1849, ^^^ was married to 
Mary Parmley Tobey, a member of a prominent New Orleans 
family, and a member of the Society of the Colonial Dames in 
New Jersey, by whom he had six daughters. In a letter 
received by our Secretary, Mr. Nixon, from Miss Helen 
Koues, informing us of the death of her Father, she spoke of 
his membership in our Society and said that he was always 
most interested in it. He was also a member of the New York 

Perhaps Mr. Koues was not known to many of the newer 
members of the Society, but there is evidence of the good work 
he did in its earlier days, especially when he acted as its 

Dr. George Herbert Richards. 

Dr. George Herbert Richards, State Number 66, General 
Number 2962, was admitted to membership in our Society 
January 12, 1901. He was seventh in descent from Governor 
Robert Treat. He died at his home on the morning of Sep- 
tember 9, 19 19. 

Dr. Richards was an enthusiastic member of various patriotic 
Societies. He served the Society of the Order of the Founders 
and Patriots of America as Genealogist, Historian, Councilor, 
and Deputy Governor, as well as Governor. He was also 
active in the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, 
serving the New Jersey State Society as Registrar for five 
years, and was President of the Orange Chapter. He was also 
a member of the Society of the War of 1812 of New Jersey, 
and at one time served the Society as President. 

He was President of the Homeopathic Hospital of Essex 
County and a member of the staff, and was connected with 


other hospitals in New Jersey. He was President of the Board 
of Health of Orange and Chairman of the Building Committee 
of the Board of Education. When war was declared with 
Germany, Dr. Richards tendered his services to the Army, and 
in May, 1917, was commissioned a First Lieutenant in the 
Medical Reserve Corps and assigned to active duty in the 
base hospital at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. He retired from 
the Army a little more than a year before his death. 

Thomas Stryker Chambers. 

Thomas Stryker Chambers, State Number 180, General 
Number 5515, was elected to membership in our Society on the 
29th day of January, 19 16. His death occurred in his home 
in Trenton, N. J., on October 21, 19 19, in his sixty-eighth 
year, following a long illness. 

General Chambers was the last member of a family that 
settled in Trenton during the early days of that community's 
history, and whose members through succeeding generations 
took a leading part in its affairs, and contributed materially to 
its progress. 

General Chambers was born on March 13, 1852, received 
his education at the Trenton Academy, and entered into 
mercantile life with the Trenton Gaslight Company. He was 
elected a Director in the Trenton Banking Company in Feb- 
ruary, 1892, and served until 1899, when he resigned to enter 
the Army at the outbreak of the Spanish- American War. He 
was a member of the Trenton Battle Monument Association, 
and was a member of the Committee to secure appropriations 
from the thirteen original States. He was one of the orig- 
inators of the Young Men's Republican Club, now the 
Republican Club, and was its President in 1886-7-9. He was 
Secretary and Treasurer of the Mercer County Republican 
Executive Committee from September, 1887, to June, 1898, 
vacating both offices upon entering the United States Volunteer 
service during the Spanish-American War. 

He was elected to the House of Assembly for the year 1889 


and served on the Committee for Militia. He was appointed 
to the Board of Health upon its organization, July, 1882, and 
served as a member for many years. He was Treasurer of 
the First Presbyterian Church from March, 1885, to 1889, and 
Trustee from April, 1901, to the time of his death. In No- 
vember, 1899, he was appointed Bank Examiner, and later 
named as Manager of the Trenton Clearing House, a position 
which he also held up to the time of his death. 

General Chambers was a member of many Clubs and organ- 
izations, social and patriotic. He served at one time as 
President of the Sons of the Revolution of the State of New 
Jersey. His military career covered a period of forty years, 
and was distinguished by faithful and efficient service which 
won recognition in the form of rapid advancement in rank. 
Entering the National Guard service in March, 1873, as a 
Private, he passed rapidly from one to another of the higher 
grades, finally receiving the rank of Brevet Brigadier General, 
at which he was retired in March, 191 3. 

In the Spanish-American War, General Chambers served 
in the Fourth New Jersey Volunteers, in which he was com- 
missioned a Major June 30, 1898, and advanced to the 
Lieutenant-Colonelcy, March 4, 1899, serving in this office 
until the regiment was mustered out in Greene ville, N. C, 
April 6, 1899. 

General Chambers' entire life was marked with unusual 
devotion to his duties as a citizen and as a patriot. Few men 
have filled so many different positions with such fidelity 
and distinction. As a member of our Council, he is remem- 
bered with the greatest pleasure by those who had the good 
fortune to know him. He entertained the Council at his 
residence in April, 19 18, and the dinner following the meeting 
of the Council was marked by old-fashioned Southern hospi- 
tality both as to the delightful viands which he provided and 
also by the manner in which the dinner was served and the 
evident enjoyment of General Chambers in having the table 
surrounded by his friends. 



It is with great regret that we are called upon to record the 
death of General Chambers, and to realize that hereafter in 
our meetings we shall never again enjoy the pleasure of his 
presence with us. 

Jonathan Hunt Blackwell. 

Jonathan Hunt Blackwell, State Number 185, General 
Number 5598, was admitted to membership in our Society on 
the 1 6th day of June, 19 16. Mr. Blackwell was perhaps not 
known personally to many of our members, but he was a man 
of affairs and very well known in the city of Trenton, where 
he made his home for fifty-seven years. 

Mr. Blackwell was born near Hopewell, N. J., December 
20, 1841. After receiving a common school education and 
a business training at Eastman Commercial College at Pough- 
keepsie, he went into the grocery business in the store kept 
by his Father. At the age of 21 he went to Trenton and 
entered into the wholesale grocery business. 

At the outbreak of the Civil War Mr. Blackwell enlisted as 
a Sutler's Clerk, and to join his command, the Third New 
Jersey Cavalry, he rode horseback from Trenton to Washing- 
ton. Sutlers were not allowed to proceed with the Army of 
the Potomac, so Mr. Blackwell returned to Trenton and 
re-entered business there. 

Mr. Blackwell was a Democrat. In 1873 he was elected to 
Common Council and served three years, when he was elected 
to the State Senate. He was appointed by Governor Abbott 
to serve as State Treasurer upon the death of Mr. George M. 
Wright. In 1878 he was a member of the Commission named 
by Governor McClellan to the Paris Exposition. His active 
political career ended in 1885, and from then on he gave all 
his attention to his varied business interests. He was a member 
of the Commission that built Trenton's present City Hall. 

Mr. Blackwell was deeply interested in the welfare of the 
Werner Hospital at Trenton, and it is said that for many 
years it was his custom to visit the Hospital every Sunday 


afternoon. The patients and those in charge looked forward 
to his visits, for he never failed to have a cheering word and 
a warm hand clasp for everyone. 

For many years he was a member of the Board of Directors 
of the Interstate Fair. He was President of the Spring Lake 
Golf Club and active in the affairs of the Country Club. He 
served twenty years as President of the Lotus Qub, and he 
was President of the New Jersey Society of the Sons of the 
Revolution. He had large and active interest in the Wholesale 
Grocers' Association. He was President of the Standard Fire 
Insurance Company, Vice-President of the First National 
Bank, and a Director of the Trenton Savings Fund Society. 

Mr. Blackwell's death occurred on November i6th. The 
funeral services were held at his residence the following 
Saturday morning and the interment was made at Hopewell, 
where he was born seventy-eight years ago. 

Horace Holx>en. 

Horace Holden, State Number 119, General Number 4434, 
died suddenly at Asheville, North Carolina, on December 7, 
1919. He was admitted to our Society April 17, 1907. He 
was the son of the late Horace and Abigail Rankin Holden, 
and died in his fortieth year. Funeral services were held at 
the home of his Father, Edward P. Holden, Madison, New 
Jersey, on Friday, December 12th. 

The latter part of Mr. Holden's life was devoted to the 
education of young men along the lines of the English system 
of teaching. 

Mr. Holden became a member of the Society of the War 
of 1 81 2 in 1908, and was elected President of the New Jersey 
State Society in 1918, serving for one year. He derived his 
eligibility to membership in that Society by descent from 
Horace Holden, his Great-Grandfather, who was a member of 
Captain Daniel Kilbum's Company of Artillery, of Orange, 
which was attached to the Second Regiment of Infantry of 


New Jersey. He served as a Lieutenant and afterwards as a 
Major and Aide-de-Camp on the staff of Brigadier-General 
Colfax, of the New Jersey Militia. 

James Monroe Buckley. 

James Monroe Buckley, State Number 130, General Num- 
ber 4750. From the great wealth of what could be said of Dr. 
Buckley, it is difficult to condense into this short Memorial 
anything that will adequately describe his ability, his accom- 
plishments, and his character. He was perhaps the most 
remarkable man ever connected with our Society. 

He was of English ancestry, his Father coming from 
Lancashire in 1827, and was born in 1836. Early in life he 
developed tuberculosis, of which his Father had died. At the 
age of fourteen he entered the Pennington Seminary in New 
Jersey, after which he tried his hand at various occupations 
until 1854, when he again returned to school and made a name 
for himself as a brilliant but erratic student, a ready and witty 
debater, and here he began to emerge from the shadows of 
skepticism and infidelity and to learn from his young friend 
Landon "the Alphabet of the New Life." 

In his twentieth year he entered Wesleyan University at 
Middletown, Connecticut, intending to prepare himself for the 
practice of Law. Llis health was frail and his funds low, 
and, as at Pennington, he helped himself by teaching 
Winter terms of school. On the stump in the Fremont Cam- 
paign in 1856 he had discovered his gifts as a popular speaker 
and he was sought after on many occasions. In Bakerville, 
Conn., he was set to debate on "Immortality" with an Adventist 
from Boston, and the seriousness of that combat had a reflex 
influence on his own beliefs. From that epoch he took a new 
and higher view of life, and in a revival about that time, which 
shook a neighboring community under the leadership of a man 
by the name of Abbott, the young teacher at last found himself 
and his life work. He determined to leave college and devote 
the scant remainder of his days — as the weakness of his lungs 


seemed to destine him to an early grave — to ''preach as a dying 
man to dying men/' 

His first charge was at Exeter, N. H. He was then so 
enfeebled in health from frequent hemorrhages from the lungs, 
that he doubted whether a Methodist Episcopal Conference 
would accept him, but with the extraordinary characteristics 
which enabled him to triumph in so many things in life, he 
fought this disease to a finish and conquered it. 

The record of his life is filled with marvelous records of his 
Church work and especially his editorial work. In his pastoral 
work he established a reputation as a preacher who appealed tO' 
men of a high intellectual type. In i860 he easily won at the 
General Conference of the Methodist Church the position as 
Editor of the "Christian Advocate" and continued in this 
position without opposition until 19 12, when he declined re- 
election on account of advancing years, and went into voluntary 
retirement at the age of seventy-six, receiving such tributes 
of esteem and affection as have come to few men in Methodist 

As an editor, he belonged to the Greeleys, Danas, Bowleses, 
McKelways, and Wattersons, and these journalists were proud 
to admit his kinship. The Advocate was ''Buckley's Paper'* 
as the Tribune was "Greeley's." He was unquestionably 
one of the greatest leaders in the Methodist Church, never 
seeking for himself any of its honors or positions. 

As an evidence of his versatility, it is said of him that he 
excelled as Pastor, Preacher, Lecturer, Editor, Churchman, and 
Humanitarian, and he achieved distinction in many other fields. 
He was sufficiently versed in the Law to enable him to discuss 
principles, statutes, and cases with jurists ; he knew more of 
the art of healing than some physicians and he was an honorary 
member of Medical Societies. He had studied all memory 
systems and made incomparable use of the best of them; he 
was an authority on epilepsy and insanity; his acquaintance 
with the literature of tuberculosis, indigestion, alienism, and 


other pathologic fields was only less than professional. He 
attended lecture courses in Law and Medicine. 

Bishop Fowler describes his outward appearance as follows : 

"Dr. Buckley is short of stature, like Saint Paul, standing 
five and a half feet in his stockings and weighing one hundred 
and fifty pounds. He is bald-headed like Socrates. His eyes 
are round, dark, and steady. He is nervous, quick, and ready, 
yet calm, deliberate, and authoritative." 

He fought the liquor traffic with wisdom and power at a 
time when the Eighteenth Amendment was but a dream. He 
summoned his fellow Christians to their duty toward suffering 
humanity, and Methodist hospitals began to dot the land. He 
destroyed illusions, exposed fakirs, demolished shams, and kept 
ever before the Church the fundamentals of its faith. And 
because his place in the nation was so conspicuous, and his 
pen and voice were so eloquent, and the religious body for 
which he spoke so numerous, he brought a tremendous 
reinforcement to those in other Churches who stood for the 
same principles. When evangelical Christianity was challenged 
Dr. Buckley was one of its recognized champions. And upon 
more than one occasion it was his presence in the lists that 
saved the day. 

He died on Sunday morning, February 8, 1920, at his 
home in Morristown, N. J., in the eighty-fourth year of his age, 
rounding out one of the most complete and useful lives of 
anyone in the long list of New Jersey's distinguished sons. 

Franklin Murphy. 

Franklin Murphy, State Number 53, General Number 2519, 
died at Palm Beach, Florida, on February 23, 1920, in the 
seventy-fifth year of his age. 

Born in Jersey City January 3, 1846, his life record is 
most remarkable for its activities, its successes, its patriotism, 
and its usefulness. At the early age of sixteen he enlisted as 
a private in Company A, Thirteenth New Jersey Volunteers, 


for the Civil War; three years later he was mustered out as a 

He entered the varnish business and established the Murphy 
Varnish Company, of which he was Chairman of the Board 
of Directors when he died. 

He was a member of the Board of Aldermen of Newark 
and became its President. He was elected to the State 
Assembly in 1885. He was unanimously nominated for 
Governor in 1901 by the Republican State Convention and 
was elected. During his career as Governor many important 
beneficial Laws were enacted. He was offered the post of 
Ambassador to Russia by President McKinley, but declined it. 

He was a member of the Executive Committee of the 
Republican National Committee for seventeen years. In 1908 
he received 158 votes for Vice-Presidential nominee at the 
Republican National Convention. He was a delegate to five 
Republican National Conventions. 

He was a member and at one time President-General of the 
Sons of the American Revolution. He was a member of the 
Loyal Legion, the Grand Army of the Republic, and the Society 
of the Cincinnati, as well as a member of our own Society, and 
was a Mason. 

Mr. Murphy was easily one of the foremost citizens of the 
State of New Jersey in political and business life. He came 
of Connecticut Colonial stock, transplanted to Bergen County, 
N. J., in 1766. 

Throughout his entire life, in addition to all the successes 
that he had as a business man and politically, one of the out- 
standing traits of his character which were so distinctly 
noticed in Mr. Murphy's life was that of his pure American 
patriotism. Much of the time of his busy life was given to the 
furtherance of patriotic organizations and patriotic endeavours, 
to maintain for this country the principles on which it was 
established. As a member of our own Society, he was a 
member of the Council from 1900 to 1904, and filled the office 
of Lieutenant-Governor from 1904 to 1906. 


Few of the members of our Society have been more con- 
spicuously known and helpful in their life and few will be 
more sincerely missed in their departure. 

George Cummins Thomas. 

George Cummins Thomas, State Number 13, General 
Number 851, one of the most prominent residents of Elizabeth 
and well known in the Law circles of New York, died, on 
February 26, 1920, at his home, 860 North Broad Street, 
Elizabeth, N. J. He was sixty-one years old. He lived in 
Elizabeth more than fifty years. He was ill about a year and 
was in a much weakened condition during the last two weeks 
of his life. 

Mr. Thomas was a classmate of President Wilson in Prince- 
ton University, and was born in New York City on September 
28, 1858. He was a descendant on the maternal and paternal 
sides from old New Jersey families who had participated in all 
the wars since Colonial days. 

On his paternal side, he was a grandson of Colonel 
Thomas, U. S. A., and he was also a great-grandson of Colonel 
Edward Thomas of Revolutionary fame, whose residence is now 
Carteret Arms. 

He was a member of St. John's Episcopal Church, of 
Elizabeth, and for many years was a Warden of the Church. 
He was interested in the various activities of the Church and 
was one of the earnest workers when its welfare was concerned. 

He was a member of the New Jersey Historical Society, The 
Suburban Club, The Elizabeth Town and Country Club, and 
other societies. Mr. Thomas was a member of the Council 
of our Society from 1896 to 1909. He was Deputy Governor 
from 1909 to 191 1, and was Chancellor from 1896 to 1909. 
He aided very much in draughting our Constitution, which is 
acknowledged as one most complete and in many respects a 


William Pierson Field. 

William Pierson Field, of Newark, N. J., was received into 
the membership of our Society last June, and died on the ist 
day of August of this year (1920). He was born in 1862, son 
of the late Moses and Anna J. (Pierson) Field. He came of 
a long line of distinguished ancestors, who were among the 
earliest settlers of Newark, being a direct descendant of the 
Rev. Abraham Pierson, the first Minister of the old First 
Church, and of his son, Abraham Pierson, the first President 
of Yale College. On his Father's side, he was a descendant 
from the original John Field, the Astronomer, who came to 
this country in 16 — , the exact date being unknown. He was 
therefore related to the distinguished family of Cyrus Field 
and Dudley Field. 

After receiving his preparatory education, Mr. Field entered 
Princeton University, from which he was graduated in the 
class of 1883 with the degree of C.E. He was a member of 
the Ivy Club. 

Immediately after his graduation he entered the Engineering 
Corps of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and remained with them 
until 1890, during which time he did much technical and con- 
structive work. On July i, 1888, he was granted a leave of 
absence by the Railroad Company, in order to take a course of 
Engineering at the Royal Polytechnic School of Wiirtemberg, 
at Stuttgart, Germany. 

On July I, 1890, Mr. Field opened an office in Newark for 
the private practice of his profession, and in the course of his 
practice he supervised the construction of many and extensive 
works which involved difficult problems in various lines of 
engineering. It is said of him that he was among the first to 
recognize the value of and to use reinforced concrete for 
building construction. Many of the buildings and industrial 
plants in and around Newark were designed and constructed 
by him. Among his later works were the design and construc- 
tion of groups of buildings for Colgate and Company, the 
Essex Park County Commission, and the Crocker-Wheeler 



Company. He also' acted as Consulting Engineer for several 
of the Water Companies in New Jersey, 

Mr. Field's record in his profession is that of a man of the 
most scrupulous integrity, a careful and painstaking engineer, 
and an inspiring personality. There are many evidences of 
Mr. Field's conscientious devotion to his profession, and he 
enjoyed the confidence of all with whom he came into contact. 

He was for many years a devoted member of the First 
Presbyterian Church of Newark, and served on its Board of 
Trustees for twenty-one years, for seven years as President of 
the Board, until forced by ill-health to resign. He alv/ays 
maintained his interest in the affairs of Princeton Uni- 
versity, and was the first President of the Princeton Engineer- 
ing Association. As a member of the Board chosen to direct 
the policy of its Engineering Course, he was frequently called 
on to address the students along technical lines. 

He was a member of the University Club, the Essex County 
Club, the Baltusrol Golf Club, and was elected a member of 
the American Society of Civil Engineers in March, 1901. In 
1887 he married Miss Josephine D. Smith, a descendant of the 
Thayers of Newark, whose ancestry is traced back to William 
the Conqueror. Mr. Field leaves one son, William Thayer 
Field, who married the daughter of our own Colonel William 

Rev. Edgar E. Brooks. 

Rev. Edgar E. Brooks, General Society Number 6024, State 
Number 212, was elected to our Society on January 17, 1920. 
He was an Episcopal Clergyman, educated in the Wyoming 
Seminary, Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., and the 
General Theological Seminary. He was at one time Rector 
of the Episcopal Church at Bernardsville, N. J., and later was 
an Assistant Minister in St. John's Church at Dover, in the 
Newark Diocese. 

After ending his rectorship at Dover, he went into Social 
Service Work, serving in New York, Illinois, the Sandwich 
Islands, and in Massachusetts. 


During the war he served as a member of the Fosdick Com- 
mission at Long Branch, N. J. 

He was a member of our Society by virtue of descent from 
John Brooks of Woburn, Mass., who served in the Expedition 
against Quebec in 1690. His death occurred in Springfield, 
Mass., on February 18, 1921. 

Bradford Darrach, Sr. 

Bradford Darrach, Sr. General Society Number 852, State 
Number 14, a member of our Council, died suddenly at his 
home in Elizabeth, N. J., April 16, 1921. 

Mr. Darrach served as an Assistant to the President of the 
Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company of New York up to a 
few months before his death, having been in the service of that 
Company for fifty-four years, rising step by step from the 
position of a humble clerk to the post he had filled so well and 
so long. 

Mr. Darrach served in many positions of trust and responsi- 
bility; he was a member of the Elizabeth Town and Country 
Club, of the Baltusrol Golf Club, and of the Suburban Club 
of Elizabeth. He was elected to membership in our Society 
on July 26, 1894. He was said to be an enthusiastic golfer 
and indulged in this game up to the time of his death. In 
his younger days Mr. Darrach is said to have been a strong 
oarsman and was a member of the Viking Rowing Club of 
Bayonne. He was a member of the Trinity Episcopal Church 
of Elizabeth and was at one time Vestryman of that Church. 

Harry Peake MacDonald. 

Harry Peake MacDonald, State Number 156, General 
Society 5102, was admitted to membership in our Society May 
8, 1914. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky, May 19, 1880, 
and died August 7, 1921. 

His earliest American ancestor was Angus MacDonald of 
Glasgow, Scotland, who landed in Falmouth, Virginia, in 
1746. He was graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of 


Technology in 1901 with a degree of B.S. in Civil Engineering. 
He entered business with Snead & Company, Iron Works, in 
Jersey City, in July, 1901, and he rapidly rose to positions of 
trust and responsibility, being made Superintendent of their 
plant and Vice-President in 191 5. 

He was the inventor of the MacDonald Rolling, Ramming, 
and Molding Machine for Foundries, Electrical Heat Treating 
Machinery, and automobile patents. During the war, besides 
his most active duties at his own plant, which was making a 
variety of munitions, he served on the staff of the Montclair 
Battalion as Ordnance Officer, and with the Lewis Machine 
Gun Company of Montclair as Chief Mechanician. 

He was a member of the Jersey City Chamber of Commerce, 
Chairman of the Safety and Sanitation Committee of the 
National Founders Associations, Secretary and Treasurer of 
the Forbes Leigneurie Hunting Club, a member of the Society 
of Automotive Engineers, a member of the Committee on In- 
dustrial Training for War Engineering of the Council of 
National Defense. He was also Advisor to the Metal Trades 
Board on War Labor Policies in 191 8. 

As will be noticed from reading the above account of Mr. 
MacDonald's active life, he did not depend on the accident of 
descent from a Colonial ancestor, but in a busy and useful life 
cut short in its prime, he did what he could and all that he 
could, socially, scientifically, and patriotically for perpetuating 
those things for which his ancestors stood. 

Howard Coghill. 

Howard Coghill, son of James H. and Mary Mulford 
Coghill, was bom at New Rochelle, N. Y., August 27, 1858 
He was educated at private schools and at Columbia University, 
where he graduated, with honors, in 1880. After a year spent 
in foreign travel he entered the Columbia Law School, gradu- 
ating in 1883. He practised law in New York City from 1883 
to 1898, and then retired from active business life. In i 


he married Edith Dunbar, who survives him, together with 
one son, James Henry Coghill. 

Mr. Coghill inherited a fine library from his father, and 
added largely to it, specializing in French history and fiction. 
He took a keen interest in political and social issues, and was a 
frequent contributor to the columns of the N. Y. Evening Post. 
He was a charter member of the Society of Colonial Wars, and 
at one time served as its Historian. 

As a man, Mr. Coghill was distinguished for his fine sense 
of honor in both public and private life. He was much inter- 
ested in music, and was a member for many years of a semi- 
professional flute quartet; he also helped to organize the 
Morristown (N. J.) Amateur Orchestra, and took an active 
part in its work. He died at Roosevelt Hospital, New York, 
on January 30, 1922, following an apparently successful 

A good citizen, a scholar of cosmopolitan culture, and a 
loyal friend, his early death is sincerely and widely mourned. 

Isaac M. Lougheed. 

Isaac M. Lougheed, General Number 5990, State Number 
211, was admitted to membership in our Society October 30, 
191 9. He had not been very active in his membership, but he 
attended the last General Assembly of the Society as a delegate, 
and it was my good fortune to see him intimately on that 
occasion. He was engaged in the business of Stationer and 
Engraver in Philadelphia, but resided in New Jersey. 

Mr. Lougheed met with a sudden death on February 17, 
1922. While hurrying to catch a train at his residence in 
Atlantic City, he was stricken with heart trouble and died 
almost immediately. 

He was a direct descendant of one of the old Colonial 
families of Philadelphia, a member of the Union League, the 
Military Order of the Loyal Legion, Sons of the Revolution, 
the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, and our own Society 
of Colonial Wars. He was also a Vestryman of All Saints 
Episcopal Church in Atlantic City. 


Rev. Cornelius Brett, D.D. 

Rev. Cornelius Brett, D.D., General Number 3567, State 
Number 87, was admitted to membership in our Society 
January 23, 1904, and served us as Chaplain from 1910 to 1919. 

Dr. Brett was a most lovable character, and his association 
with us in the Society and as a member of the Council was 
greatly enjoyed. He was a man of many talents and used all 
of them to the best advantage. He was a well educated man, 
a devoted Minister of the Gospel, and a broad-minded, useful 
citizen. He was Pastor of the Bergen Reformed Church for 
forty-two years and his funeral services were most impressive, 
a very large crowd testifying their devotion to his memory by 
their attendance. Included in those present were some thirty- 
six clergymen of various denominations, either participating in 
the funeral services, or by their presence testifying to the 
esteem in which their fellow Pastor was held. He died Feb- 
ruary 24, 1922. 

Dr. Brett was President of the Phi Beta Kappa Society in 
New York, and for eight years was Chaplain of the old Fourth 
Regiment, National Guard, New Jersey. 

In the latter part of his life he was afflicted with blindness, 
but even this terrible calamity did not prevent his activities in 
either his religious or civic life. He lived to the ripe age of 
eighty years, a life of usefulness and honor, and his going out 
was like the setting of the evening sun after the close of a 
perfect day. 

John Brewer Wight. 

John Brewer Wight was born in Washington, D. C, March 
2, 1853. His father was Otis Caleb Wight, and his great- 
grandfather was Nahum Wight, who was an officer in Col. 
Brewer's regiment in the Continental Army; he was also a 
direct descendant of Thomas Wight, who settled in Dedham, 
Mass., in 1635. 


Mr. Wight was educated in Rittenhouse Academy, in Wash- 
ington, which was owned by his father. 

In 1877 he became Secretary and Business Manager of 
Gallaudet College, Washington. In 1890 he entered the real 
estate business in Washington. In 1897 he was appointed 
Commissioner of the District of Columbia, by President 
McKinley, in which office he served until 1901. 

In 1903 he moved to New York, to assume control of the 
New York office of the Alpha Portland Cement Co., with 
which Company he remained until his retirement in 1921. 
His home was in Montclair, N. J. 

Mr. Wight married October 10, 1883, Miss Anna Kumler, 
and is survived by his wife and his son, Goulding Kumler 
Wight, of Montclair, N. J. He passed away at his home in 
Montclair, March 31, 1923. 

For many years, Mr. Wight was keenly interested in 
patriotic work and was a member of various such societies. 
He became a member of the S. A. R. in 1890, and was one of 
the founders of the Montclair Chapter of the New Jersey 
Society, when it was organized in 191 1. He was also President 
of this Chapter. 

In 1 91 2 he became a member of the New Jersey Society of 
the Colonial Wars, and at the time of his death, was Historian 
of the N. J. Society, and Treasurer General of the General 

He was also a member of the Order of the Founders and 
Patriots of America. 

Mr. Wight's remains are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, 
Washington, D. C. 


The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New Jersey 
in Annual Court assembled, having heard with profound grief 
of the death of John Brewer Wight, Esq., desiring to record 


their sense of loss and their appreciation of his noble qualities 
of intellect and heart and their appreciation of his distinguished 
services to this Society and to the General Society, adopting 
this minute, order it spread on their record and a copy sent 
to the family of Mr. Wight. 

Of a distinguished American family, Mr. Wight embodied 
the best traditions of our past. He was a gentleman and 
possessed in high degree those good qualities of unselfishness, 
consideration for others, and of service that characterize *'a 
gentleman of the old school." 

For many years he was a member of the Council and 
Historian of the Society. He discharged his duties with con- 
scientious fidelity, and brought to his task a genuine personal 
interest and a mastery of polished and stately English. At 
the General Assembly of 1921, Mr. Wight was chosen 
Treasurer-General and at once endeared himself to his asso- 
ciates of the General Council. His painstaking discharge of his 
duties deserves highest commendation. 

In the death of John Brewer Wight, the State has lost a 
citizen of the purest patriotism, the Society a loyal member, 
the Council a wise advisor, and each of us a friend.
